Dana W. was a lovely and attentive waitress. Any questions we had she would go and ask for us since it was our first time and we were taste testing and inquiring about ingredients. We loved it!

This is my favorite place to eat out. I only wish they had one closer on the east side but I am happy they have one downtown. The whole bowl has been my go to for many years now. I have a hard time moving on from it. 💛

Portion size was small for my entree. Wine pour was smaller than usual and dessert was overpriced. I used to love this place.

I arrived and greeted promptly, then seated. Had the spicy temphah wrap and side salad and my guest had a big salad. We both had cold pressed juice. She also had a chocolate tuffle. Good experience.

Absolutely loved the calamari. Different burst of flavor as you continued to chew. You should offer cooking classes. I wish I knew how to cook vegan.

They've changed their menu and I think it's been better balanced in the past. The vibe at Rose St is much more welcoming than Larchmont and I haven't noticed that in the past. Our server was great but clearly overworked while other employees stood around. Seems like it would be more in character for everyone to do whatever's needed to get food to tables and cleared in a timely manner. They appeared to be understaffed at least as far as waitstaff and the morale did not seem good.

I love Cafe Gratitude! The food is always great. It can tend to be a little pricey since it is all organic but I’m OK with that. The falafel were very flavorful! We also had the kelp noodle pesto salad and it was so good!

Bus boy drop a tray of cutlery right next to me and it all feel on glass and metal causing a very disturbing and scary sound. I thought it was an earthquake! got spitting headache thereafter. Told waitress and expected at a minimum an apology and a complimentary dessert- but nothing!
Ruined my dining experience. event equated to Poor customer service

Another great meal at Cafe Gratitude. The nachos were excellent as was the curry bowl I enjoyed. Great and friendly service as well. Any negatives? The key lime pie tasted like wall paper paste. The only reason you would know it had any lime in it was the small sliver of fresh lime on the top. Ugh ...

I ate here a few years ago and it was incredible and I’m not a vegan. I was so impressed with the melted cheese on my panini and the ceasar dressing was divine. This time around, not so much. Ordered a black bean burger with cheese and it had some neon orange paste slathered on, no warm melted goodness. The burger tasted just like black beans were mashed and pressed into a round patty. No flavor. The ceasar was made with a
lettuce which is too flimsy for the heavy dressing. Last time it was made with kale and it worked perfectly. They changed many things on the menu and not for the better. We did have the buffalo cauliflower which was delicious, but everything else was incredibly meh.

Very tasty vegan food. The potatoes that came with the veggie breakfast burrito were so simple yet tasty, and the ketchup tasted homemade. The quiche was fantastic. Two of us shared two dishes and we couldn't finish them, so the portions are great for leftovers. The coffee was ok, but to be fair, I'm very partial to the kind I make. Server was nice, and they played great music.

I’ve honestly never walked out on a meal like this. Me and my brother are both vegetarian and eat at lots of clean dining food but the vegetables were not fresh, the avocado was brown and the cauliflower was acrid and bitter. We were unable to eat our food so I asked to get the check. The waiter said “sure” and when he brought the bill my brother asked “don’t you even want to know why we left our food?” And he answered “did you want a to go box?”. The whole thing was a debacle. Absolutely would never go back.

It was basically very nice. there were a lot of empty tables but everyone was squished together as if to make it easier for the servers. We felt like we had no room and everyone was on top of each other.

Had a great lunch. We aren’t vegan (but do have celiac) and we all loved everything we ordered. The portions are large so we couldn’t finish everything but we loved the menu so we didn’t want to share so we could try lots of items. Buffalo cauliflower.

The bowls are tasty and filling, which was pleasantly surprising to me as a non-vegetarian dining with vegan colleagues.
The guacamole’s perfect balance of salt and citrus with nice blend of texture, and the homemade tortilla chips are out of this world!

The buffalo cauliflower app was good. My friend I ordered the pulled mushroom sandwich and it was disappointing. Tasted like artificial smoke. We also had to really flag down our waiter. Not worth the price

The food is excellent. The Torta Chopped Salad with Mushroom Carnitas was one of the best salads I've had. Staff was courteous and attentive. Food came out very fast. Great atmosphere. A bit pricey for a salad but that's to be expected at a vegan/vegetarian restaurant. I will definitely go back!

Noise level is ridiculous.
Seating was crowded - cafe chairs bumping into the people behind us and sitting directly over two other diners. Awkward and strange.
I would never go back unless we sit outside.
Leftover entree dish had soured by next day.
Unsettling.
Also they were sold out of the only 2 desserts we were interested in.
Gluten free options were difficult to identify.

Had the Brussels sprouts and the fried mushroom sandwich and both were delicious. The iron skillet cookie was out of this world. Want to request the fried mushroom sandwich be a permanent menu fixture.
Service was very friendly and efficient. Can't wait to come back.

Great food at an affordable price. Took my mom here for mother’s day and the whole family loved it! The service was great and I will definitely be back. My only wish would be that there was more outdoor seating.

I am Vivid, I am Empowered, I am Cozy...This is what I ordered over Mother's Day since the establishment encourages patrons to order the items on the menu under their code names and with the sentence "I am...". Ok maybe I made it sound lame, but it really is not. My mom, wife, sister and college age daughters thought it was just the right touch in completing a healthy vibe for our breakfast together. BTW the food was really good and it satisfied both my Vegan sister's needs while not alienating my 73 year old mother's sensibilities. The service was bright, cheery and competent and overall we thoroughly enjoyed our time spent there. It's nice to know that there are healthy places to go out to eat at that leave one with a good fresh feeling as well. Well done!
